  • Catalogue Essay

    The IWC Portugieser was first introduced over 80 years ago from the request of two Portuguese businessmen to commission a wristwatch with the precision of a marine chronometer. Since then, the Portugieser has become an important flagship collection of the firm. While the very first examples were chronometer timepieces, the iconic case has housed various complications over the course of its production, including Kurt Klaus’ signature perpetual calendar module.

    The present Portugieser perpetual calender ref. IW502218 was launched in 2006 featuring a white gold case with an ardoise grey sunburst dial. Symmetrically designed with an off-set digital year display, the watch is proportioned in a graceful 42.3mm diameter case, the sophisticated slate grey dial with silver accents on the moon phases gorgeously changes tones under different light. Powered by the calibre 51610, it offers an impressive 7 days of power reserve and was used between 2006-2007, production continued in 2017 until 2012 were upgraded with the calibre 51613. Offered in excellent overall condition, the IWC Portugieser Perpetual Calendar is a sophisticated and versatile choice for connoisseurs.
